"The 2016 Pinot Noir is only moderately saturated in color but boasts concentrated aromas of menthol, beetroot and cherry cola. Partially de-stemmed and matured in French oak for ten months, it's light-bodied and forward, marked by cherry fruit on the palate and barely present silky-textured tannins. Drink it over the near term with poultry and salmon, maybe even with a slight chill." (WA)

Winery Notes:
Displaying complex aromas of raspberry, sour cherry and hints of forest floor. The palate is seamless and elegant with flavours of strawberry, dark cherry and rhubarb over layers of mushroom and truffle. The French oak barriques add ample but delicate tannins with a creamy palate delivering a generous and delightful length. Superb on it’s own or enjoy as an outstanding accompaniment to a duck or game dish, alternatively mushroom and pumpkin pasta as a vegetarian option.
